How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN feedback and visited school website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty were very nice and welcoming. The school's curriculum is one that appears to really try to prepare you for the profession with a solid foundation. The number of resources and opportunities that are available to students are almost limitless. I also liked the fact that there is a pass/no pass grading system which really tones down the stress-level and eliminates competition between peers." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Aside from the frigid weather this time of year..nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the facilities were not as bad as previous feedback made them out to be (you must take into consideration how old the school is). In fact they are in the process of constructing new dental facilities which should be completed in the coming Fall. The people around the community and campus are also very nice and willing to offer help (contrary to public belief of Harvard students)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed with the presentation of their program. The actual interviews were pretty laid-back in the sense that they just wanted to get to know your character to see if you will fit in with the rest of the class. At the same time, they tried to give you a good idea of student life so you can assess whether or not the school would be right for you. The students were very honest with their opinions and were very willing to answer any questions. " Report Response
